Dhaka: The Bangladesh government on Sunday decided to ban the broadcast of Peace TV which is a channel owned by Zakir Naik – the controversial Islamic preacher – in the country.

“The decision was taken by the Law and Order Cabinet Committee in a special meeting,” said Minister of Industries Amir Hossain Amu while talking to media persons.

It may be mentioned that the 50-year-old preacher’s entry is banned in the United Kingdom (UK) as well as Canada. Moreover, Peace TV is already banned in Malaysia.

Other highlights:

  • Peace TV is officially owned by Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), a Mumbai based charity organization.
  • Naik is the founder as well as the president of IRF.
